What are Dentures?
Dentures are a substitute or replacement for your missing teeth and tend to be more affordable than a traditional crown, bridgework or dental implants.
Dentures are a set of teeth which easily be taken out and put back into your mouth. They cosmetically enhance your smile as well as improving your chewing functionality. The doctor may recommend to the patient a full denture or a partial denture depending on the individual’s needs, mouth structure, and any other contributing factors.
Because of the many improvements and advancements in dentistry, dentures are now much more comfortable and secure than dentures in the past. Not only that, dentures today look and feel like your real teeth.
Full dentures are usually applied when all or almost all of the natural teeth are missing. If there are any teeth remaining, they are removed and a full denture is fitted and specially made for that patient.
Partial Dentures are dentures that replace anything that is less than a full set of teeth and are more affordable that full dentures since there is less work and material involved.
Conventional Full Dentures
Conventional full dentures are when every one of the teeth are removed from the mouth and the gum tissue is given ample time to heal and recover prior to dentures being placed. It many take a up to a few months for the gum tissue to totally heal. During this period you would be without any teeth. This is not the most ideal situation and we do not recommend you go that long without your teeth – nor would you want to!
Immediate Full Dentures
Immediate full dentures are a better alternative. Before having your teeth removed, your dentist and our staff will take measurements which will allow us to have your dentures made before removing any of your teeth, allowing you to not go with missing teeth. Once your teeth are removed your new dentures will be immediately placed in your mouth. The great benefit for choosing this option is that you do not have to go without teeth. However, you will need to have follow up visits which are needed in order to refit your dentures as you gum tissue and jaw bone heal and recover. After your jaw bone has healed, your dentures then are relined to better fit your jaw. This process of healing can take up to 3 months’ time.
Generally speaking, dentures are not as comfortable as a fixed bridge or even a dental implant. They also may cover taste buds located on the roof of your mouth which will likely result in a reduced sense of taste. That’s not a good thing will all of the great restaurants that are located in The Villages!
Affordable Dentures are Within your Reach!
Because of today’s advancements in dentistry, dentures can be secured by using dental implants which allows for a much more comfortable fitting as well as eliminating the fear of having your dentures popping out our your mouth.
Remember, your dentures will probably take some time to getting used to. Your tongue may keeping poking around them feeling the new edges and curves. You may even speak a little differently. But once your mouth and tough are trained and get used to having these new teeth in your month, you won’t even notice you are wearing false teeth.
